Surface mount leds are very small, and you can order them from lots of places. So, don't let that stop you. Cheesy

Shush, Jim'll hear!  Shocked

Still wouldn't know how to construct a circuit with batteries, switches, restistors and all that malarkey.

This will help:  https://learn.adafruit.com/all-about-leds/overview

Now you have no excuse to not put LEDs on it.  Jim will be so happy!

Here's the article that taught me:

http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/infopages/page446.html

And here's a link that will tell you what resistor to use (covers one led but there's a link to a page for multiple leds):

It may not look much currently but there is a whole lotta thinking going on, plus some engine bits!

From the orientation of the front gubbins, it looks more like a CR 90 variant rather than a hammerhead....or something else entirely?

There is a madness to my method!  All will, slowly, become clear.

Nice!  Smiley
Sometime, in the far future, I will try to light up some of my constructions as well.

That IS nice - I'm still not into lighting up models, but this really is inspiring.  Cool Cool Cool
